September 2020 a young man reached out to me for some recovery assistance of some lost items out of his canoe. He went out to do some fishing with a buddy loaded up with fishing gear and their cell phones. Apparently the buddy was not so experienced in a canoe and wound up tipping the boat over. Of course nothing was tied off to the boat and at some point as the canoe drifted down stream all there goodies trickled out of the craft and sunk to the bottom of the channel.

This portion of the Sammamish River connects Lake Sammamish to Lake Washington. On this Septemeber day it is very docile with a very slow flow rate. The bottom of the channel is a fairly clean sandy contour due to the flow the visibility was not as bad as it can be in the bottom of our local lakes.  Never the less it was a slower process going foot by foot searching the channel from side to side visually searching for their lost items.

Check out the video to see the exciting recovery process in action. The iPhone having been in only seven feet of water actually survived. After drying the phone and charging, it turned on with no damage to the screen. In these situations I always urge people to take the opportunity to make a fresh back up incase the phone dies a few days later due to the corrosion process if any water made its way inside the phone. At least having a fresh backup ensure a happy stress free transition into a replacement phone.

Lost Platinum Wedding Band Dock Jump Lake Sammamish WA

Lost Platinum Wedding Band Dock Jump Lake Sammamish WA

Watch this video recovery of Andy’s Lost Platinum Wedding Band in Lake Sammamish WA.

June of 2021 in the middle of our summer heat wave I was contacted by Andy who needed some dive recovery assistance. He was in town for a bachelor party staying at a lake side rental property. The home has its own back yard private dock on Lake Sammamish. With the summer heat at full boil at 102° F everyone had been spending a lot of time in the water. Andy’s situation was no different, he decided after a cup of morning wakeup coffee to take a refreshing jump off the end of the dock. As he was swimming up to the surface he felt his platinum wedding band slide off is finger. He had a moment of panic then got on line to do a little research on how to find a lost ring in the lake. Thankfully he landed on TheRingFinders.com website and hailed my attention for assistance.

Once I arrived on site with all my gear one of the top two constraints to this mission was the broiling heat and the large down hill pathway from the residence to the waters edge. Both of witch we managed at a slow pace. Being cautious not to get heat stroke plenty of fluids were consumed and the dive gear was not put on until moments before entering the refreshing lake water. Refreshing it was! 

Even though the ring was lost at a shallow sixteen foot depth it was too deep for a typical swimmer to search. The lake bottom in the middle of the summer was in full bloom with lots of organic growth that directly translates into silty low visibility waters. With my trained SCUBA dive capabilities, metal detection gear, PVC search grid and lost item search experience I was able to recover his ring from the lake.

All ended well as Andy was able to be reunited with his wedding ring. He was happy to continue on with the enjoyment of the weekend celebration. There was no reason for him to leave his precious wedding band behind and for this I’m thankful he reached out to TheRingFinders.com for some professional recovery assistance!

Lost iPhone in Baltimore, Maryland…Found by Diver in Middle River

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Tim’s iPhone 11 Once Again Back on Shore…And still works!

Tim and Chrissy Beyond Relieved that Tim’s Valuable Smartphone was Recovered by Diver Brian Rudolph

BRIAN RUDOLPH, LOST ITEM RECOVERY SPECIALIST (LAND, WATER, SAND, SNOW, LEAVES, HOUSES & VEHICLES) WILL FIND YOUR LOST KEEPSAKE! CALL ASAP (301) 466-8644!

While I was diving for a lady’s engagement ring and wedding band in the Middle River at Maryland Marina, located in Middle River, Maryland, a gentleman named Tim had lost his iPhone 11 off his boat nearby.

Tim walked up to my dive spotter, Jason, while I was underwater and asked him if he could chat with me. Once I ascended to the surface, Tim explained to me that he was stepping onto his boat on the other side of the marina when his iPhone fell out of his pocket and dropped down into the water.

The distraught gentleman then asked if I was available sometime during the day to dive in his boat slip and attempt a search and recovery of Tim’s lost smartphone. I was happy to help the fellow out.

As it turned out, my dive time was cut short that day based on the quantity of boats that were coming into port that afternoon. So, after packing up my gear, Jason and I hauled my dive equipment over to Tim’s slip to setup for my next search.

When I got over to Tim’s boat, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that he was dating a woman named Chrissy whose family owned the marina. I had already connected with her very kind father because of needing permissions to dive at the marina. Chrissy’s family members have been extremely supportive and encouraging regarding my recovery operations off their docks.

Once I got all of my gear back on, I stepped onto the swim deck of Tim’s fantastic boat and descended down his boat ladder. Next, I grabbed my underwater metal detector from the deck and headed down below to seek out the gentleman’s smartphone.

Tim, Chrissy, Jason and two other friends of the couple waited above with anticipation as I searched the water below. The depth was less than 10 feet with zero visibility (very common in the Maryland and Virginia areas).

I used a down line that Tim supplied which we tied to one of his tie offs on his boat closest to where he dropped the phone. This helped me to remain oriented as to where I was positioned down below. After picking up a few random pieces of metal that I detected with my Excalibur 2 metal detector, I encountered an excellent signal that sounded similar to other cell phones that I had previously found in the deep.

Convinced that this particular signal could very well be Tim’s iPhone, I took out my pinpointer and detected the exact location of where the target signal was coming from. Then, I reached with my hands to grab the object and it was at that moment that I was confident I had found the missing phone! The shape of the target felt like a smartphone and it also had the weight of one as well! Carefully, I ascended towards the surface with the item in hand.

Before the others could even see my dive mask, they saw the phone in hand as I slowly emerged from the water! There was a resounding applause and a huge feeling of complete relief felt by Tim and Chrissy! They were extremely grateful for my successful recovery of the phone!

I was so happy to recover Tim’s very important piece of property! The best part of the story is that after the phone had been submerged underwater for 6 hours, it still worked perfectly! Once news of the recovery hit the ears of the owner of the marina (Chrissy’s dad), I was proud to have earned a few extra points with Chrissy’s dad, the owner of Maryland Marina!

What a wonderful afternoon it was to help out this very sweet couple!
